A sterling silver antique locket from the Victorian era, well textured with layers of repoussé work and an edge of silver balls. With chased Forget-Me-Not flowers on the front, this is a very beautiful locket.
+ All the Details
Sterling silver, unmarked (not unusual with Victorian silver) tested and guaranteed to be sterling. No photo fittings on the inside, the locket has a deep receptacle for a memento. (See image #2)
A medium size locket, measuring 1 x 1.18 inches (25 x 30mm) layering up approximately 9mm thickness. The drop from the chain including the bail is 1.5 inches or 38mm.
The Chain: The locket is presented on a new sterling silver rolo or belcher chain, 50cm or slightly under 20 inches long. The locket and chain are shown on a life size torso in photograph 2.
Age: c.1885 ( I have sold similar hallmarked lockets from this date )
Weight: 6.6 grams (without the chain).
Condition: Very good. The back of the locket has several very small indentations and ripples. All beads on the edge are present, the beautiful hinge is strong and the locket closes tightly and stays closed - this is a very strong locket!
The embellishment to this locket is beautifully executed with contrasting layered textures that are lovely to see and hold.
